More Adults Are Getting Braces Than Ever Before
Have you always wanted a straighter smile? Did you wear braces as a kid, but have experienced shifting of your teeth since? Dr. Matt Ahrens and our team want you to know that it is never too late to wear braces! Dental braces not only create a great smile.

Many adults are taking advantage of these opportunities to get the smile they have always wanted through braces. From minor cosmetic imperfections to severe tooth misalignment, we offer the solutions you need to enjoy an attractive, healthy smile!
Orthodontic Treatment Options Best-Suited for Adults
As an adult, you may have some reservations about how braces fit into your life, especially as a working professional.
Modern technology offers several options for treatment:
Made of natural-looking porcelain, ceramic braces work in the same fashion as traditional braces. However, they are less noticeable than metal braces, and blend with the natural color of your teeth.
Invisalign® clear aligners
Invisalign lets you straighten teeth in the most discreet way possible. Invisalign works through multiple sets of aligners, which are changed out every one to two weeks for the next in the series. These clear aligners are comfortable, convenient and nearly invisible. Invisalign gently moves your teeth until ideal positioning is reached.
Traditional braces rely on the proven results of brackets and wires. This system applies gentle pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into proper position.
